Man arrested after more than 25 pounds of pot seized at traffic stop
West Columbia, SC - A California man was arrested in possession of more than 25 pounds of marijuana Monday after a traffic stop at the Columbia Metropolitan Airport.
Jackson Quincy Reed, a 43-year-old Sacramento resident, is charged with trafficking marijuana, according to an arrest warrant.
Reed is also charged with driving recklessly on the John N. Hardee Expressway as he drove away from the airport, according to investigators.
“Deputies apprehended and arrested Reed after he struck a light pole on airport property,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Following a lawful search of Reed’s vehicle, deputies found 28 bags of marijuana that each weighed about a pound.”
Reed is being held in the Lexington County Detention Center. A judge set bond for Reed Tuesday at $100,000 with required GPS monitoring.
